Ministry and Covid-19
Over the last 12 months, everything in some way has been impacted by the pandemic.
With our events going online for large parts of the year, it has meant we have had contact with fewer students compared to the previous academic year.
Despite this, we have still had contact with some 4,000 international students. We have had 500 join our Bible studies, and we thank God that we have seen 34 students make a faith commitment.
In line with our exciting vision, and to match the growth of international student numbers, we have also grown as an organisation. We now have more staff in more locations and our Affiliates Network has gone from 63 last year, to 80 Affiliates today – which is the most we have ever had!
We celebrate that over 400 international students have been hosted through local hosting programmes. This is a great achievement, as the Coronavirus had at one point stopped hosting entirely and has meant hosting in recent months has taken place outside or in a socially distanced setting.
Below you will see a summary of our ministry statistics which outline the impact we have had during the last 12 months.
Thank you for your support and prayers, which makes all this possible.
